COULD ART CHANGE THE WORLD?

I am hungry of culture…

… and I am a dreamer. I wish to contribute in the production of a world, in which streets becomes art galleries, in which artists confront their work directly to the public, in which arts stir up people’s curiosity and memories, in which art celebrate cultures and help us stay open-minded and inspired.

Is art just art? Should art have a purpose? Could art change the perception of the world? Is art an optimum vehicle for change, exchange, communication?

Art makes me feel! Art makes me think! Art makes me look beyond what I see! Art makes me share emotional expressions, points of view and ideas with others. Art isn’t supposed to be useful for me as would be a brolly for protecting me against the Scottish rain, but art is useful for me as would be a good night sleep for dreaming of a fairer world!

Here is an example of how art could change the world:
